    creating shortcut
    « on: November 01, 2008, 07:54:51 AM »
    How do I eliminate the "do you want to create a shortcut to desktop"  yes or no box that appears after clicking "create desktop shortcut" with a right mouse click?
    If I didn't want to create the shortcut I wouldn't have selected it in the first place.

      This is using XP.   You know like when you are on any web page and you want to put a shortcut to that page on the desktop you right click and get the menu.  You select "create shortcut".  But then I get this box I don't want that says "Do you want this shortcut placed on the desktop."  How do I eliminate this additional message/question?   Thanks!

      Ah, you mean in Internet Explorer.

      Google didn't help much, and I'm not a regular IE user, so I am afraid I can't be much help here. (hopefully someone will be along shortly with a definite answer, but I don't think it can be removed)

      Does this really bug you? ???

      Try doing it a different way...

      Click and hold the link you want to save, and drag it onto an open space on the desktop. This should create a shortcut straight away.

      Unless it's the current page you want to link to, in which case you can drag the Tab to the Desktop.
